Rain, Wind, Thunder, Lightning Hit Bay Area

News Story

Wind gusts sent trashcans flying Sunday night in Pacifica. Meteorologists say the cause was "collapsing thunderstorms" (see news story above for details). On Monday, the whole Bay Area saw thunder, lightning, and rain. Thousands of lightning strikes caused downed trees (see below @ Moss Beach) and brushfires.

145 Prime Acres for Sale Above San Pedro Valley Park

Riptide reader Kevin M. reports: "Private land for sale (145 acres, $7.5 million) in the back of Linda Mar above San Pedro Valley Park. On zillow.com since early August. Hopefully some open-space group will buy this so we won’t have to look up Linda Mar Boulevard and see monster homes looming over the back of the valley."
 

Surf Spot Restaurant for Sale or Lease

Surf Spot restaurant on Sea Bowl Lane closed August 27. It is now up for sale or lease. Facebook page said: "To receive a refund on any unused Surf Spot gift cards, please send the card with your mailing address to 4625 Coast Highway, Pacifica, CA 94044." Impressed that Surf Spot is honoring unused gift certificates. That's good, ethical business practice by the local owners. We hope they pay off their vendor bills the same way, so nobody gets stiffed.
